In "4.2.18. Interface types", it says:

"If V is a platform object that implements I, then return the IDL interface
type value that represents a reference to that platform object."

But it doesn't say how to check "that V implements I". Should implements link
to something? I would have expected an algorithm for checking how one thing
implements another thing. 

Also, "return the IDL interface type value that represents a reference to that
platform object" seems verbose. I'm not sure what you want me to return there?
just "return V"? or "return new V()"? :/  

(sorry if I missed something previously about this, I'm cherry picking parts to
implement out of order)
